The Prime Minister's hint yesterday that the UK economy is out of the double-dip recession, was made official today.
Figures for the third quarter representing July to September show the economy grew by 1% - its fastest increase for half a decade.
ITV News' Economics Editor Richard Edgar reports:
Today's GDP figures are obviously good news, but the Chancellor is rightly cautious about the state of the recovery.
Underlying growth is a rather less impressive 0.3 per cent when the Olympics and bank holidays are taken into account.
Official figures are expected to confirm today that the UK economy has pulled out of recession. But future growth could remain slow.
